"Bryce and the Blood Ninjas" Therapeutic children's book

Shared by Erec-Michael Weber on 2016-06-12 04:51

About the solution

"Bryce and the Blood Ninjas" is a children's book written specifically for young kids grappling with a new pediatric cancer diagnosis. It's main purpose is to contextualize their condition, give credence to how serious it is, encourage complete buy-in with their treatment regimen (parents may have to make adjustments in the story to mirror the intricacies of their child's regimen), but mostly encourage them to maintain their youthful exuberance through it all. Illnesses are very serious, deserve a child's respect, but don't require them to live in constant fear. The story may also be very helpful to parents unsure, or struggling, with how to handle the diagnosis themselves.

About the author

"Bryce and the Blood Ninjas" was written after I made an analogy about my 4 year old son's Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia diagnosis. It helped him to understand what was going on inside his body, and what we had to do to make him better. It appealed so much to his love of superheroes and stories of adventure that I thought it might very much help other kids too. What I didn't realize is just how much it helped my wife and ME to process the fear and uncertainty we were feeling and proactively PARENT our son through this!
